EDC: Disaster Recon

With Team Rubicon, the first step to initiating any disaster relief operation is to send in a recon team to assess the damage and needs of the community. After tornadoes raked Garland, Rowlett, and Glenn Heights in Texas the day after Christmas, I deployed as a Recon Team Leader to visit the area and gain intel for the State and Regional leaders waiting to spin up an operation. We plotted disaster maps and made crucial relationships with local police, fire, and emergency management officials. This is the EDC I used in the field.

I kept it light, just what I could carry in my pockets on or on person.
